At Triangle Pastoral Counseling, I see a diverse population of clients seeking help through transitions and life events, and clients seeking healing from the effects of trauma. My clients may be Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Agnostic, or unaffiliated and spiritual. Regardless, I practice unconditional, positive regard, and strive to create an atmosphere of open, curious, non-judgmental listening and reflection. I am trained and experienced in working with anxiety, depression, life transitions, LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS clients, trauma, clients experiencing grief, loss, chronic illness, for individuals, couples, and groups.

I have a specialty in working with clients identifying and recovering from trauma and addiction/compulsion, clients who are living with or recently diagnosed with HIV, clients who are LGBTQ, and clients who have been living a storyline of negativity, fear, regret and feeling stuck wishing to move forward triumphantly.

I use Motivational Interviewing Techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy among others. My approach is eclectic, and my belief is that there are as many ways to look at and address a problem-saturated story as there are people seeking to move forward and thrive.
